Fun bits from the week of June 23rd…

* Leah celebrating her 5th birthday!  Thank you to all of our friends and family who helped make #5 so special! 

*Now that Leah’s 5, she insists she does not need to take a nap!  I know…hard to believe that she still naps! 

* Kami (who’s 23 months) looking after her sister Brooke (who’s 11 months) and saying “no, no baby… no, no” when Brooke gets into something she’s not supposed to.

* Brooke flirting with a doctor during an appointment last week.  Brooke has a clogged tear duct that required a visit to the Opthamologist.  He played games with her to get her to look one way or the other.  She kept giggling and gave him the smile, tilt head, shy away look.  I couldn’t believe my 11 month old was flirting!

* While we were driving to the store the other day, I looked in the rearview mirror and caught Leah teaching Kami how to sign one of the vacation Bible school songs.  This was one of my favorite moments and makes all the crazy stuff (see “Complete Chaos” post) worth it.

* Kami has been insisting she buckle herself in her booster seat and carseat.  The 2 yr old independence is here!

* Leah getting VERY upset (tears, kicking, meltdown type) because she can’t chew bubblegum – if only that was all I had to worry about!

* I’m beginning to think Brooke is part monkey.  The girl climbs on everything… 

Brooke found her way into my office (which she does several times a day) and decided to use my plastic storage container for a trampoline.  Maybe I should clean up my office so there’s not so much good stuff to get into. 😉

Brooke can climb and stand up on the rocking chair.  If I had to put money on it, I’m guessing she will be our first child to get stitches.

* A great visit with some old friends this past weekend.  It was great to see Sean and Lisa  – thanks for the strawberry pie!

Here you go.  Final designs went to the printer.  Plans to print in 7 to 10 days.  Yeah!

These are from the “Spicy Pumpkin” Collection.  Remember – they will not be printed on white stock…so they will look a tad bit different.  Hope you like them!  I’m a fan of “orange” too! 🙂

I just have to say that my hubby has been awesome this weekend.  I was completely exhausted Friday night from a very long week of single parenting.  Not to mention I was still on the mend from having my wisdom teeth out.  I was sooo tired and he has been so sweet.  I received flowers Friday afternoon – sunflowers which brightened my day.  He let me sleep in until 10:00am on Saturday morning.  I can’t remember the last time I slept in – especially until 10:00!  He washed all of the laundry in the house (and put it away).   He took all 3 girls to the grocery store.  He mowed the yard.  He let me take a nap today.  He made dinner.  He bathed the girls.  He even went to Wendy’s tonight to get me a frosty.  I’m still having some pain from the surgery so he’s really been a blessing this weekend.

Hun, I know you don’t read my blog very often but I love you bunches!

Happy Birthday Tracy!  I tried to find one of our high school pics with our awesome hair-dos, but didn’t have any luck.  😦  Tracy and I have been friends since high school – we were band geeks together!  Have a great day chiquita!!

Kelly Green or Orange?

Let’s just say that Jillibean Soup might package some scrapbook embellishments in the future.  Would you, as a consumer, be drawn to a kelly green package or an orange package…or neither? 

Thanks in advance!

Prayer Requests

My husband has a co-worker who recently found out he has an aneurism.  Dave could use some prayers.  Also, Leah has a little friend who recently got some bad news.  To keep things private for the family, I won’t share…please keep them in your prayers.

Leah turns 5 today!  So very hard for me to believe!  Leah was born 7 weeks premature after 3 long months of hospitalized bedrest.  We are so very blessed to have her in our lives.  She is such a strong, independent, funny, vivacious little girl. 

We love you bunches!!

OK, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to share any designs just yet.  My paper is still in the process of being printed.  This is from the “Cream of Mushroom” line.  It’s one of my favorite designs.  Please keep in mind that it will be printed on a different medium and not on white stock. 

I hope you like it as much as I do!  Thanks for looking!
